Chicago Ridge has 12 licensed locations with 55 machines, and people dropped $215,266 during August, generating $53,816 for the state in August and $10,763 for the village.

Think about how much of that would have been spent in Chicago Ridge restaurants, stores and the mall. Instead it went into the pockets of bar owners.

Think of how much these guys pocketed on their poker machines before gambling was legal. Now that they need licenses they probably are making less. All they had to do was split with the mob. Now they have to cut the State in too.
